Yeah, it wasnt a question of having a safer option, at least right now. Its a roto league, so I've left a couple of positions open over the last week, so I've got some games to make up. My team, once healthy, is in great shape, and if everyone can stay that way (knock on wood), I've got great options each night. There might actually be nights that I bench a guy like Durant because I have a lot of other options.
So that basically means that I had two options tonight: either play a weak Parker and hope that he put up decent options and fill one of those missed games, OR sit him tonight and have more games for the future to be made up by (hopefully) more healthy options. So play a weak Parker tonight or down the road fit Durant into my lineup on a night when I have an extra roster spot? I agree that Parker is not set to play his best at this point, so I'm electing to sit him tonight to gain the opportunity to make up some games down the road. Hope that made sense. Thanks for the input!
